This will be the last Saturday ride of the year and we have decided to follow tradition from last year. We will meet at De Anza Cove in Mission Bay and ride through downtown San Diego to Coronado, take the ferry back across the bay, and ride back to the start.
There will be a C and a D group doing the same route as 2 separate groups. There will be no E group this weekend.
De Anza Road
San Diego CA 92109
We are meeting at the last parking lot off from De Anza Rd (between Mission Bay Park and the RV resort)
Don’t forget to bring $5.00 per person for the ferry crossing!
Cash or credit cards accepted
Route starting at De Anza Cove
NOTES: Please bring an extra tube, CO2 cartridge or hand pump, and enough fluid and snacks (suggestion: two bottles minimum for the longer rides, and two snacks). Helmets are always required, and we obey all traffic laws. Road bikes are required for these rides.
C and D groups are conducted in a non-competitive, cooperative format.
C group: Tempo-paced rides, 40-50 miles, with average speeds on flats >20 mph and average pace times over hilly routes >15 mph. Minimal stoppage times, less frequent regrouping.
D group: Endurance-paced rides, 40-50 miles, with average speeds on the flats in the 16-18 mph range with emphasis on building climbing skills, not necessarily hammering those hills. Set stoppage points to allow for differing speeds, but will be limited to keep the overall pace of the group.
